Pros

flexible work hours,you can learn if you are ambitious, excellent benefits, work from home for non managers, free newspaper.

Cons

laid back but changing, personal rapport matters a lot, declining industry, need some better leaders, started outsourcing to save money.

Advice to Management

Too many directors in the company even if they don't have reportees. Needs lot of co-ordination between teams/depts/group. Set up a central purchase office. All this will prevent duplication of work.

    Pros

    The namesake carries significant weight. Great DC location. Also a great resume builder. Utilize operating database systems that are transferrable.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity for advancement. Lack of communication with upper management. Not really into mentoring subordinates, or grooming for higher positions.

    Advice to Management

    Take your subordinates seriously, and trust their ability. We were hired for a reason, not to be babysat. Management needs to be more accountable for their actions and not place blame on subordinates.

    Pros

    Good to have on your resume

    Cons

    Highly political, packing with people with pedigree degrees who think they are smart but can't execute any original ideas. Pockets of good people but the short story is that the company is toxic. Don't go there unless you need a temporary place while you are looking for a real job.
